Community Energy & Roof top solar: A step by step approach

March 28 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am

2023 saw the installation of over 190,000 domestic and business roof top solar projects. The highest number of projects since 2011.

The roof top solar sector is ever changing, since the demise of feed in tariffs, groups have had to find alternative models to make projects work.  Some groups think roof top solar is no longer possible but there are ways to make it add up and enable communities, parishes and districts to join the revolution and create additional benefits for their communities?

This Masterclass will take participants through the steps involved in setting up a roof top solar project, from initial funding for feasibility and site location, through to finding markets for your power generation, developing projects, building projects and ultimately how the project is managed over years going forward. 

Come to this session and leave with a clear picture of the route forward for you and your group, how to sell your vision to others and an commitment to creating and delivering a strong project pipeline.
